Leaping Climber

( Complete Scoundrel, p. 87)

[Movement, Skill Trick]

There's no better way to start a tough climb than by leaping up the wall.


Climb 5 ranks, Jump 5 ranks,


If you begin a climb by making a Jump check as a swift action, you can add the vertical distance of your jump to the distance climbed in that round. Treat the Jump check as being made with a running start even if you didn't move at least 20 feet.

Example: Ember the monk is standing at the base of a craggy cliff and wants to scale the cliff as quickly as possible. She spends a swift action to make a Jump check and gets a result of 24. Thus, she adds 6 feet to the distance she climbs in that round.
